This article describes the 12/24/48 V DC Tester (1N4001). The principle is very simple, very practical. The circuit components can help you understand better grasp this principle. For example, in this circuit, you can go to find and buy these components: 1N4001.

The present tester is intended primarily for testing the 24 V electrical circuits found on most pleasure craft. However, if the resistors are given different values, the circuit may, of course, be used for other voltage ranges. For 12 V, the value of the resistors should be 1.2 k?, and for 48 V, 4.7 k?. The tester should be connected to the ve and –ve voltage rails with test clips or crocodile clips, whereupon the test probe is placed on the point to be tested. When the potential at the point is positive, the redLEDlights; if it is negative, the green one does. If the supply is not connected to earth, the tester may be used as ground-leak tester. In this situation, one of theLEDs lights when the test probe touches a point at earth potential and there is a leakage.
